Leicester City fans in the Transfer Tavern have had a brilliant week and the new week seems similarly exciting, after reports suggested they’re rivalling the big guns in the transfer market.
TalkSport, reporting via TeleFoot, states Leicester City have joined the hunt for the signature of Rennes breakthrough star Ousmane Dembele, who has scored 12 goals for the European hopefuls this season.
The performances of the 18-year-old winger have alerted Liverpool, Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund to the player’s talents– and Leicester will push to beat the established European giants to the exciting teenager.
Claudio Ranieri is busy identifying top-targets to help Leicester continue their unbelievable rise next season and a move for young Dembele would prove to be extremely profitable moving forward, as his worth is likely to rise and he’s able to make an immediate impact.
However, with more established European sides in the market for Dembele’s services, our landlord feels Leicester will struggle to fend them off and seal a deal- although he’s not ruling out anything after a bizarre Premier League season.
Can Leicester City shock everyone and win the race for this target? Let us know in the comments below!
